Re: Embrace, Extend, Extinguish.
For the record, I hate Microsoft's telemetry as much as the next reasonably clued-up person. But right now, I would trust them over a company who would, say, claim it doesn't need consent to store a person's health data.
As it so happens, last week I gave an EU official in Brussels instructions on how to gather evidence that MS isn't quite as accurately following EU law as it purports to be.
They don't deserve your trust.
